My Swift gti engine died yesterday and i am thinking instead of fix it to build a turbo engine instead.
I would like to know exactly everything i have to do and buy to build a durable T
I have the engine in a Mini so i can't buy any kit, it wont fit.
Turbo.
Manifold.
Pistons.
Rods.
Intercooler....... what else?
I would like it to be about 200hk and im hinna drive alot of trackdays.

Thanks Mikael fr.o.m. Sweden

Hejsan Micke!

we have similar goals then, except that I'm going to use standard pistons and therefore less boost. Do you have a round or a clubman front end in your Mini?

I have the round nose.
Maybe it will fit a turbo behind the grille.
But i need help to setup a "recipe" what i have to do to build a durable engine.
I don't want to build a engine that break in a week and i don't want to overbuild Either.

I would like a recipe too. I have my G13B engine in my stock Swift GTI mk2 (1992)

I know those cheap eBay kits sucks and brake often, so I want to do something reliable.

Hi guys,

There is lots of information on this site about turning the G13B into a turbo weapon. Have a read through Zuboos build, there is also lots in the technical section to read.

You will need to do:
Forged conrods
Forged pistons
Cams
Ecu
Exhaust manifold
A suitable turbo
Dump pipe
Oil lines
Injectors
Fuel rail
Fuel pump
Ignition upgrade
Intercooler and piping

Im sure there will be more!

A lot depends on your intended use and budget.

For a lower end track car like mine with low boost here:
https://www.redlinegti.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=53425&p=502076&hilit=intercooler#p502076

Stock motor comes with Forged conrods, Forged pistons, sutable Cams and Ecu

Used Exhaust manifold
$50 WRX turbo
Dump pipe
Oil lines
Old Intercooler and pvc piping
A rising rate FPR
Total cost about $800, and it's still running strong (needs new engine mounts & a CV)
